A WOMAN went to Winter Wonderland and spent £27 on one ride but said it was "worth it".
Emily Lockwood posted a video to TikTok sharing the cost of her evening out.
Despite the total being "too bloody much" the 23-year-old said it was worth every penny.
In the video shared to her thousands of followers, Emily revealed she bought mulled wine for £6.50 each, two trays of noodles for £24 and churros for £5.
Arguably reasonably priced for the London-based event, the cost of the rides left viewers shocked.
Emily claims to have spent around £30 on games and an eye-watering £22 just to go on the big wheel – plus a £5 fast track.

One parent said: "[The] kids will have fun. Expensive yes, overpriced sure but do a few rides then leave and eat before you go that helps."
